A Rangle Code School

Applications are now closed, and will reopen for Cohort Three in the Fall.

What is Bridge?

Bridge is a free eleven-week program run by Rangle.io for women in software development. We meet in person twice a week, in small class sizes, to work on real-world projects and learn in-demand skills from expert Rangle developers. Bridge is committed to providing a supportive environment where women can learn, ask questions, and build on their technical skills. At the end of the course students will leave with greatly increased confidence, a project for their portfolio, and experience with highly-sought-after technologies taught by industry experts.

What will you learn?

  • Modern JavaScript (ES2016+)
  • Functional Programming
  • Front-end Architecture
  • Practical Test Driven Development
  • Git Flow
  • Agile Product Development
  • At least one prominent JavaScript library (eg. React or Angular 2)

Class Details

Please note that in addition to class time there will be an expectation that each student will spend approximately 10-15 hours per week outside of class working on the project.

Who can apply?

Anyone who identifies as a woman and has some experience with coding; you're comfortable with programming basics but would like to advance your web development skills. You can be a junior web developer, a self-taught mobile dev, someone who left development and wants to come back - anything. As long as you have the desire to learn we welcome your application. If you're unsure you qualify, apply anyway.

The application process

Bridge will be open for applications from April 17th - May 8th. Rangle will look over every application we receive. Those who are selected as possible candidates will be contacted at the email provided by May 22nd, and sent a short technical test with instructions to submit. Once you receive the technical test you will be given one week (including the weekend) to hand it in for assessment by our instructors. All candidates who pass the technical test will be asked to join the class by June 2nd.

What is Rangle and why are you running Bridge?

Rangle plans, designs and develops modern JavaScript applications through Agile development and continuous delivery while extending and coaching client teams. Find out more on our home page. We believe tech companies need to do much more to support and provide opportunities for women in the software industry. From our own hiring process and personal experiences we knew that the industry was lacking in a program that could "bridge" the gap for women looking to quickly skill up and gain confidence in their technical abilities. Bridge was created for women, and by women, out of this need, and we hope that it will help women overcome some of the many barriers the industry puts in their way.

"I loved every minute of Bridge (and miss it)! It was a huge treat to learn from such knowledgeable, patient and enthusiastic industry pros. Thanks to Bridge program organizers and Rangle for helping to level us 13 women up in tech!" - Melanie Burger, Bridge Cohort 1 (now a developer at Rangle!)

"I learned more in the program than I did in school! The instructor was very patient and it was very hands on. I would 100% do it all again in the future." - Chanelle Francis, Bridge Cohort 0
